It's about time.
I think the teachings of Jesus, the Bible and all its history should be taught in our public schools. As well, the peaceful teachings of Hinduism and of the great courage of Mahatma Gandhi should be taught.
The gentle wisdom of Buddhism should be examined, along with the thoughtful perspective of the Dalai Lama.
The ancient Chinese religion of Confucianism and its respect for ancestors should be studied.
So should the simple elegance of Lao Tzu and the teachings of Taoism.
Students also should get the chance to really read and understand the great religion of Judaism and its historical implications.
The real hot button, of course, would be the rich teachings of Islam and its millions and millions of passionate followers.
Heaven forbid we should start to understand and tolerate all beliefs.
